F1 » Rosberg alarmed by German GP uncertainty


richard:
Jim Clausen: I've been a F1 fan since the sixties. Frankly, I'm getting to the point where I'm so tired of Bernie's shenanigans I question whether I'll even watch F1 this year.
but i bet you will!
More likely I won't. The last couple years my interest in F1 has been waning. Years ago, I stayed glued to the TV from green to checkered. Now, I watch the first few laps and catch the finish. F1 does not have the "E" factor (entertainment) it used to have. If I want to watch some entertaining motorsports competition I'll watch Moto GP or World of Outlaws sprint cars. I even attend the WoO sprint car races. Now, there's a show!

F1 » Haas F1 set to use Marussia factory as base


"Haas declared that he is interested in acquiring (bidding) for the data and design of the 2015 Marussia car." That'll be sure to put the Haas entry up front. What Gene Haas is actually trying to accomplish remains a mystery, to me anyway. I do keep in mind this is the same Gene Haas that spent two years in a federal penitentiary for fraud.

F1 » OFFICIAL: McLaren names Alonso, Button as 2015 F1 line-up


Somehow, I feel Ron Dennis was heavily influenced, maybe even vetoed, by the other McLaren shareholders when it came to driver(s) choice. If the Alonso/Button pairing is not to Ron's liking we will see some strange happenings at McLaren that will be detrimental to driver performance. As for Button versus Alonso, Button can probably match Alonso on outright speed, but when grim determination comes into play I feel that Button comes up short when compared to Alonso.

F1 » Kate Walker: Dog eat dog eat F1


If you are a racing fan with less than a six figure income, F1 (read Bernie Ecclestone) wants nothing to do with you. F1 has become a club by the rich-for the rich. The money side of F1 has far outstripped the racing side. It's become a spectacle for the ostentatious to be seen and display their wealth. This includes the sponsors. I wonder how many of the celebrities seen at F1 races actually pay to attend. I would not doubt that even the travel and hotel costs are paid, either directly by F1/Bernie or a sponsor, for some of the celebs. F1 today is a far cry from the days of Frank Williams kiting checks to race, Ken Tyrrell building a car in a woodshed, racers forming their own teams, ala Brabham, McLaren, Gurney, to name a few. All of the aforementioned produced winners, btw. Thankfully, I was lucky enough to attend F1 races in those days. A racer who was daft enough to start his own team today would quickly be parted of his money.
